Did you want some of piano roll functionality in max? Because, I think at this point there are better and easier ways around using detonate.... for example, using plugmidiin>udp-write localhost inside a pluggo plugin using #synth in a pluggo script makes it possible to use a proper sequencers piano roll. all you do is put the vsti you created on whichever lane you want to pipe into max and viola. Or, atlernatively virtual midi cables work just as well... Just curious what you were trying to do or why you were working with detonate [in the first place]. Because, and this is just my opinion, it sort of seems a lost cause to even bother with that object :) ... that's just me though.
shite, I just noticed you can attach files.... makes sense.... doh. Okay, well all that junk I just put above can be downloaded via attached, that is to say attached actually works being as such I am trying it for the first time now.
Hrm yeah, I guess. I don't know, I have only been using max for 2-3 years and to me, I guess being as such that detonate doesn't really seem to "do it to well" is no accident. I think its a bit too much of a "musical" primitive for my/MAXs' likings... But yeah, its there and should work, did you try my alternative? I know I've spent a lot of time messing about with detonate and I've never been particulary thrilled with its functionality as a piano roll/sequencer. Versus a program like Nuendo, it almost seems like a rather ridiculous object.
